|OCFD introduces a public safety program for
our residents and neighbors...
|"We can't help you... if we can't FIND you!"
|Every second counts during a fire, police or medical emergency. Valuable time can be
lost if your house number is not clearly posted where emergency responders can see it.
Police officers, firefighters and EMS responders can't provide lifesaving services to you
and your family if they cannot find your house. The Oaks Corners Volunteer Fire
Company is offering to provide you with a highly-visible sign in order for responders to
locate your residence in a more timely manner, potentially saving time... and lives!
|"Do I really need one of these signs?"
|The Signs and Pricing
|The signs are made of aluminum (same grade as road signs)
with a reflective color backing and 3" reflective white
numbers on both sides. They are 6" wide and 18" tall. They
are designed to be installed on a mailbox post for the
greatest visibility from the street.
For the 6" wide by 18" tall sign, the price is only $18.00 (we
respectfully request that if your sign must be shipped,
please add an additional $8.50 for shipping via USPS). If you
need a mounting post (unshipped sign), we offer those for
an additional $5.00. The sign that you order will either be
GREEN or RED, depending on what style construction your
house or building is. (See below for explanation.)
For residents living in a mobile home park, we also offer a
12" wide by 6" high white aluminum sign with black
numbers of your lot number for only $15.00.
To place your order for a "911" Address Sign, please call
(315) 789-8876 (please leave your name, address and a
phone number) or download an order form HERE and
mail it to the address on the form. We will contact you when
the sign is delivered to us so we can get it to you.
|"Why the difference in sign color?"
|What if I don't live in the Oaks Corners fire district?
Can I still order an address sign?
|You sure can! Just print out one of our order forms (the link is below) and send it in with
payment. We encourage EVERYONE to make sure that their house or business can be quickly
located in an emergency, so we are not limiting our address sign program to Oaks Corners fire
district residents. Our neighboring chiefs and firefighters in the Phelps, Border City and North
Side Fire Departments endorse and recommend our sign program to their residents also. The
more people we can help, the more lives and property we all can potentially save!!
